Leftist Saboteurs Strzok and Page Caught Within Our FBI


by Paul Mirengoff  at PowerLine:

“The Washington Examiner has obtained hundreds of text messages between Peter Strzok — the agent on special counsel Robert Mueller’s team who was demoted for critical messages about President Trump — and his alleged mistress Lisa Page, a lawyer also assigned to the probe. The messages were provided by the Justice Department to congressional committees.

As described by the Examiner’s Kelly Cohen, the text messages show a couple whose hatred of Trump ran deep. For example, in March 2016, Page texted Strzok, “God trump is a loathsome human.” Strzok replied, “Yet he may win.”

In July, during the Republican National Convention, Strzok and Page goaded each other to watch it. “TURN IT ON, TURN IT ON!!! THE DOUCHEBAGS ARE ABOUT TO COME OUT,” Strzok wrote to Page. She replied moments later: “And wow, Donald Trump is an enormous d*uche.”

The next day, Strzok wanted Page’s impressions. “Hi. How was Trump, other than a douche?” he wondered. Page replied: ““Trump barely spoke, but the first thing out of his mouth was ‘we’re going to win sooo big.’ The whole thing is like living in a bad dream.”

Later in this particular hate fest, Strzok confessed to being “panicked” about the election.

After Trump get into it with Gold Star father Khizr Khan, Page and Strzok became even more nasty. Page wrote: “Jesus. You should read this [article about the dispute]. And Trump should go f himself.”
Strzok replied, “God that’s a great article. Thanks for sharing. And F Trump.”

In August, as Trump continued to hang with Hillary in the polls, Strzok asked Page: “What the hell has happened to our country!?!?!??” He also “worried about what Trump is encouraging in our behavior.”

And so on.

The text messages speak for themselves. I would just add that the view of Trump expressed in these messages, and the language used to express them, are standard among the lawyer and government worker class in Washington, D.C. In the Summer and Fall of 2016, I doubt that a week went by in which I didn’t hear them expressed. And I tried to avoid liberals during that period.

I believe the Page-Strzok hatred of Donald Trump is just the tip of the Team Mueller iceberg.”


How Democrats, Especially their Feminists, Have Adored, Esteemed Woman- Killer Ted Kennedy

No One Ever Drowned in Roy Moore’s Car

by Jack Cashill    at American Thinker:

In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ:

As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. With Gaviglio on Dodd’s lap, Kennedy jumps on top and begins rubbing his genital area against hers, supporting his weight on the arms of the chair. As he is doing this, Loh enters the room. She and Gaviglio both scream, drawing one or two dishwashers. Startled, Kennedy leaps up. He laughs. Bruised, shaken and angry over what she considered a sexual assault, Gaviglio runs from the room.

The incident above took place in 1985 at the restaurant La Brasserie in Washington, D.C., where Loh and Gavigilio both worked as waitresses.  Everyone in Washington knew about it, including Sen. Claire McCaskill.  Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy’s behavior upon his death in 2009:

This man was so much more than his image. While his vision soared, the power of his personality and the magnet of his intellect drew his colleagues to the table of compromise. It was there he did his best work. His love for the little guy and his affection for the underdog influenced everything he did. And importantly, his sense of humor and contagious laughter made him real and approachable in spite of his power and privilege.

Although more than enough to kill a Republican’s career, the infamous “waitress sandwich” barely made Kennedy’s highlight reel.  For sheer moral squalor, it was hard to top Chappaquiddick.  This 1969 incident is well enough known; in brief, Kennedy hosted a drunken party at an isolated beach house whose guests included exactly six married men and six single women.

Late that night, Kennedy and one of the women, Mary Jo Kopechne, left for their own private party at an equally isolated beach but never made it.  The car went off a small bridge.  Ted Kennedy left Mary Jo alive, trapped in the car and gasping for air.  He bypassed homes near the bridge, from which he could have called the police, and walked over a mile back to the party house.  Once there, he sought out his lawyer friends, Joe Gargan and Paul Markham, to help him work out his alibi.  Compromised by a presumed lawyer-client relationship, they had to wait for Kennedy to call for help.  Kennedy never did.  He may have been hoping that Gargan, the family fixer, would take the rap.  Mary Jo, meanwhile, struggled to survive for perhaps an hour, even more, before suffocating.

Sen. Patty Murray of Washington was eighteen when Kennedy let Mary Jo Kopechne die.  Said she in her tribute to Kennedy, “When I was young Ted Kennedy was larger than life.”  Murray continues with a straight face, “Ted never once stopped fighting for those who couldn’t fight for themselves.”  Ms. Kopechne might beg to differ.

Although Ted was never tried for rape, his nephew, William Kennedy Smith, was.  On Good Friday 1991, Kennedy took Smith and his son Patrick out for a long night of drinking.  What better way for a Catholic to honor Good Friday?  The young men brought two young women home with them.  Hoping perhaps for his share of the action, a drunken Ted Kennedy, nearly 60 now, wandered without pants into the room where everyone gathered.

“I got totally weirded out,” said one of the women.  She stood up and told the others, “I’m out of here. I’m leaving.”  The fleeing guest left behind Patricia Bowman, the woman who would accuse Smith of rape.  Smith would be acquitted.  Ted Kennedy cheered.  He believed Anita Hill two months earlier, but he chose not to believe Bowman.  “It’s the acquittal that money can buy,” said Bowman afterwards.  Reported rapes were said to have dropped 40 percent in that part of Florida after the trial.  No one wanted to go through with what Bowman had.

“Twenty years after I first met him, I was elected as a U.S. Senator from Maryland,” said Maryland’s Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Kennedy.  “I was just one of two women Senators and the first Democratic woman elected to the Senate in her own right. Though I was all by myself, I was never alone. Maryland’s senior Senator Paul Sarbanes and Senator Kennedy were what I call my ‘Sir Galahads.'”

After just thirty years in the Senate, Mikulski stepped down last year.  McCaskill and Murray, however, may get to decide the fate of Alabama’s Roy Moore should he get elected to the U.S Senate.  They do not believe that Moore lives up to their standards.  Without benefit of due process, McCaskill declared him “not fit” to serve in the same Senate as Sir Galahad Ted Kennedy.

Say what one will about Roy Moore, but unlike Kennedy, he did not make a career of debauchery, and no one ever drowned in his car.



FBI a Fascist Bed for Spying on Conservatives?

Liberals Have Turned The FBI Into A Disgrace

by Kut Schlichter   at Townhall:

Add this infamy to all the other crimes of the liberal establishment – its poisonous influence has converted the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in the eyes of the American people, from a proud institution dedicated to upholding the law into just another suppurating bureaucratic pustule. Where once we saw FBI agents as heroes – many of us ancients grew up watching Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., every Sunday night – now we see careerist hacks looking to suck-up to the Democrat elite while bending the law and subverting justice to do it. Truly, everything liberals touch dies.

The revelations about Oh-So-Special Agent Peter Strozk shouldn’t surprise anyone, as bad as they are. Even that hack Robert Mueller couldn’t keep him all-board the Russia Soft Coup Express after Strozk’s anti-Trump texts to his FBI mistress came out. Shocker – this is the same Democrat-loving clown who watered down the Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit investigation conclusions (helpfully drafted months before the investigation concluded). Oh, and he oversaw the unsworn, unrecorded interview of his special gal (not the one he was cheating with; the one with the taste for Chardonnay and failure who would have helped his career as a reward for his slavish devotion had she not botched running against Donald Trump). He was also in on the ambush of LTG Mike Flynn, who he and his scuzzy compadres decided to prosecute while the Harpy, Huma and all the rest of the Clinton Nostra got a pass.

Oh, but for the lefty in-crowd, it’s “Bros before Bureaus.” The new head honcho Christopher Wray – Where the hell is he hiding anyway? Is he locked in a gimp box somewhere in the Hoover Building? – didn’t even fire Strozk though intermural adultery is allegedly against the rules at the FBI. Nope, nothing builds confidence in a law enforcement agency’s organizational integrity like bending the rules to protect your bigwig buddies.

Oh, wait – outright payoffs do too! Don’t even start on Andrew McCabe and his wife’s Democrat contributions – to her. Yeah, the wife of the FBI second-in-command got money from the Democrat Party and he’s still not recused from this fake investigation. Are you kidding?

By the way, have we got even a single iota of information on what the unholy hell happened since Special Agent Johnson and Special Agent Johnson took over the investigation of the Las Vegas shooting?

It’s long past time to lance this boil. It’s sad when you have to accept that you can’t talk to the FBI, that they can’t be trusted to do justice, that you must protect yourself from being railroaded like LTG Flynn was and always – always always always – demand to speak to your attorney and demand that the FBI not question you if they come sniffing around. LTG Flynn trusted them not to have an agenda. Look what happened, and learn……..(please continue reading below:)




That Leftist’s Attack on Rand Paul

WaPo: No Really, What WasThe Reason Behind Assault On Rand Paul?

The Bermuda Triangle. Jack the Ripper. The Zodiac codes and series of murders. These famous mysteries remain in the public imagination — but can we add another from Kentucky? The Washington Post tried to get to the bottom of a bizarre attack on Sen. Rand Paul last month by neighbor Rene Boucher, and still can’t quite come up with an answer:

They might have sparred over health care or taxes, but an acquaintance of both said they stood in their yards roughly a decade ago shouting at each other over the grass clippings Paul’s mower had shot on Rene Boucher’s property.

“ ‘I ask him, I tell him and he won’t pay attention,’ ” the acquaintance, Bill Goodwin, recalls Boucher saying after the argument. “ ‘One of these days.’ ”

That day may have come last month, when Boucher’s attorney said in an interview his client attacked Paul over long-simmering disagreements between the two about the care of grass, trees and other landscaping on their adjacent properties in an exclusive gated community.

The account marks the first time either side has offered a reason for one of the nation’s most talked-about political mysteries: What sparked the worst attack on a sitting senator in decades?

An even bigger mystery may be why so few people are discussing it. The Post deserves credit for this follow-up; the more local Louisville Courier-Journal, part of the USA Today network, hasn’t covered it since Boucher’s November 9th not-guilty plea. Until last week, the story mostly fell off the media radar, which has been deluged with scandal and intrigue in other places.

Even the victim doesn’t want to get into it. Paul went on Fox News last week to discuss his recovery and revealed that Boucher said somethingto him at the time. Paul didn’t reveal what Boucher said to him, arguing that it was unimportant, as John noted at the time:

“After my ribs were broken, then he said things to me to try to indicate why he was unhappy,” Paul said. He added, “I guess to me the bottom line is it isn’t so important. If someone mugs you is it really justified for any reason?

“So I think the more people belabored ‘Oh, well was it about yard clipping? Was it because he hates Donald Trump? Does he…he hates you because you oppose Obamacare?’ You don’t really know what’s in someone’s mind and so it may have some relevance but for the most part, the real question should be: Are you allowed to attack someone from behind in their yard when they’re out mowing their grass? Even if you dislike something about their yard.”

The answer to Paul’s question is that motive doesn’t matter in terms of right and wrong, but it’s very important in terms of investigation and justice. Boucher’s attorney insists that the conflict is personal rather than political, but he has an incentive to stick to that line. The FBI is reportedly investigating the attack, and if they find it was politically motivated, it could cost Boucher years in federal prison, where yard maintenance will no longer be an issue. On the other hand, Paul could stick it to Boucher by claiming it was political, but seems uninterested in doing so.

Perhaps Boucher’s eventual trial will clear this up. If it wasn’t politically motivated, Boucher’s attorney will undoubtedly subpoena Paul to testify as to what Boucher said after the assault. In the meantime, we’ll have to stick with more easily resolvable mysteries, such as the Money Pit on Oak Island.


Steinle Killer Called Innocent in Sanctuary City San Francisco

Mark Steyn: Steinle Verdict a ‘Miscarriage of Justice’ in the Profoundest Sense

by Debra Heine  at PJMedia:

“Mark Steyn joined Tucker Carlson Thursday night to react to the stunning not guilty verdict in the Kate Steinle murder trial.

A jury found Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a 48-year-old illegal immigrant, not guilty on charges ranging from involuntary manslaughter to first-degree murder — even though he admitted to shooting Steinle.

Zarate, a Mexico native who had been deported multiple times, shot and killed the 32-year-old while she was walking on a San Francisco pier with her father in July 2015.

He was found guilty of felony possession of a firearm, which carries a potential sentence of 16 months to three years.

“It is a miscarriage of justice in the profoundest sense in that Kate Steinle is dead because she went for a walk in a popular destination in her own city and her parents will never see anybody convicted for that crime,” Steyn told Carlson.

He pointed out that there is no dispute that Zarate fired the shot that killed Steinle and that he shouldn’t have been in the country in the first place.

“Why is one political party, the entire bureaucracy, and two-thirds of the remaining political party fetishizing and sentimentalizing immigrants who can’t speak the language, with a grade two education, and setting up competing jurisdictions in this country that protect them at the expense of American citizens?” Steyn asked.

“Well, because they provide lower wages and handy voting blocs for those parties,” Carlson answered, adding that the case inspired Kate’s Law because authorities had released Zarate from a San Francisco jail about three months before the shooting despite being asked by the feds to hold him for deportation.

“It all adds up to a picture of not just treating illegal immigrants as you would American citizens, but giving them, in effect, better treatment — special privileges because they’re here illegally.” He added, “It’s very hard to imagine that an American citizen in Zarate’s position would have been acquitted on all of these charges.”

Steyn explained that the very term “sanctuary city” was designed to shut down debate. “Because who do you give sanctuary to? You give sanctuary to refugees — to those fleeing injustice. How can there be something called a sanctuary city if it was… a place for criminals to hold up? The very term is designed to shut down the debate.”

He said the reason President Trump was elected was in part because “he declined to operate with those constraints.” Unlike most of the other Republican candidates, Steyn said, Trump wasn’t afraid to speak out against sanctuary city policies.

“I weep for Kate Steinle’s parents tonight. I do not know how I could go on living in that city if, God forbid, my daughter were to be shot by someone who should never have been in the country in the first place,” Steyn said.

It Appears Roy Moore Might Be Innocent of 14 Year Old’s Story. Should Senator McConnell Retire?


by Paul Mirengoff  at PowerLine:

“Here in the Washington D.C. area, polite society has reached judgment on the allegations against Roy Moore, and moved on. Mitch McConnell, a political enemy of Moore, rendered the verdict. “I believe the women,” he said. He didn’t tell us what facts he had reviewed or why he believed all of them.

Ivanka Trump, who has a brand to protect, concurred, declaring:

There is a special place in hell for people who prey on children. I’ve yet to see a valid explanation, and I have no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts.

Doug Jones, Moore’s opponent in the Alabama Senate race, has converted this pronouncement into an effective political ad. The president’s daughter may help the Democrats pick up this seat.

Ms. Trump’s statement raises more questions than it answers, though. First: Is there a special place in hell for 30-somethings who date 17 year-olds? Without condoning the practice, I think most of us can agree there isn’t.

Second: Did Ivanka devote enough time and study to discerning “a valid explanation” or to finding evidence that would give her “reason to doubt the victims’ accounts? Her statement isn’t so much a rush to judgment as a rush to virtue signaling.

It turns out that there is substantial reason to doubt the account of Beverly Young Nelson. The evidence she presented — a yearbook allegedly inscribed by Moore — appears to have been doctored.

Leigh Corfman is the only other person to have accused Moore of anything beyond dating and/or wanting to hang out with girls in their late teens. She did not make her allegations of molestation for 38 years, until just before an election with national implications. She has had a rocky life and does not seem particularly stable.

Ivanka Trump feels this is “no reason” to doubt Corfman’s account. Maybe not. But now, there is documentary evidence that may provide such reason.

That evidence consists of court records. Recall that, in Corfman’s account, Moore first encountered her outside a courtroom in which her mother was to appear at a custody hearing. Her mother asked Moore to wait with her, and he allegedly used the opportunity to get her phone number. After that, Moore allegedly called her multiple times, arranged two meetings, and attempted to arrange a third.

The alleged phone calls all were made to the mother’s house (Leigh remembered taking them on a phone in her bedroom, but her mother says there was no phone in that room, which is almost surely correct). The alleged encounters all began with Moore picking her up in that neighborhood.

The Washington Post, which broke the story, says the court hearing occurred in February 1979. Aaron Klein of Breitbart News pinpoints the date — February 21 1979.

Here’s what the Post did not tell its readers. At the hearing, a judge ordered that Leigh Corfman move out of her mother’s house and take up residence with her father by March 4. In making this decision, the judge noted that Corfman had exhibited “certain disciplinary and behavioral problems.”

Did Roy Moore cram all of those alleged phone calls, encounters, and attempted encounters into the 12-day period before Leigh Corfman moved to her father’s house (assuming the court order was adhered to)? It’s possible. If Moore was obsessed with the girl, he probably would have moved fast.

Still, it would have been nice if the Post had presented the timeline to its readers. Then, Mitch McConnell, Ivanka Trump, and the rest of us could have evaluated the question of timing.

It would also have been good to know that Corfman had exhibited “disciplinary and behavioral problems” sufficient to swing a custody dispute before ever meeting Roy Moore. This information is relevant in at least two ways.

First, it may go to the reliability of Corfman’s account of what (if anything) happened between her and Moore. If Corfman was significantly troubled in February and March of 1979, can we trust her statement of what allegedly happened during this period. Or might she be inventing or embellishing?

Second, Corfman told the Post that her life spiraled downward after her alleged encounters with Moore. We now know that she had serious issues before then.

This doesn’t mean things didn’t get worse. Indeed, we would expect them to get worse ifMoore behaved as Corfman says he did.

But there is evidence that things actually got better for her. According to Klein:

On May 5, 1980, which would have been after any alleged encounters with Moore, Wells [Corfman’s mother] filed a new petition to take back custody of her daughter. That petition stated that Corfman’s “disciplinary problem has improved greatly.”

(Emphasis added)

Based on this statement, the judge agreed that Corfman’s mother should be granted custody.

Does this prove Corfman is lying about Moore? No. But taken as a whole, Klein’s report makes me question her account. The points Breibart raises should be weighed before reaching a conclusion about what, if anything, happened between Corfman and Moore back in 1979.

Assuming Mitch McConnell, Ivanka Trump, or anyone else in Washington or in the mainstream media is still interested in the facts…..”
